Sissy Gordon’s father died in custody at Mount Druitt Police Station. The cops got a fine, Sissy’s family got $9,000 and no one is allowed to speak about it. Sissy is about to become a lawyer but tonight lawyers and the law are beside the point. Tonight the night is dirty and heavy, and the moon is swollen and bright. Everyone knows that on nights like this things happen.
"NAKKIAH LUI'S debut play, written as a junior resident at Belvoir while completing a law degree, pulls no punches. It throws a few, too."
"Nakkiah Lui brings burning anger to new play This Heaven on the Aboriginal experience. For the audience, itâ€™s an uncomfortable but important glimpse of hell."
